“And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.”
The pivotal last moments leading up to the Resurrection of Christ, as told by Luke in the above scriptural verse, was captured beautifully by a group of students from the Rockingham Kolbe Catholic College.
On Holy Thursday, the Kolbe Theatre Company year 10 and 11 students, championed through the scorching weather to set a prayerful and reflective mood as part of their Liturgy, to prepare for the Easter celebrations.
Drama teacher Sherrie Chant said the students and staff were involved in the process of making the play come to life, right down to the writing of the script.
She said the students, teachers, and staff of the college were challenged to use the analogy of a sailing a boat on the ocean as a comparison to our lives.
“God has blessed us with this boat on which we sail the Oceans Deep,” Chant said.
“His Spirit gives us wisdom to find meaning in our lives, to navigate our way through and to keep our balance when the oceans rise and temptations rock the boat we are on.”
The effort proved a great way to involve the community and to pray together, especially during this time of the year.
